August Reminders

Potted House Plants set outdoors during the summer often suffer for lack of sufficient moisture. Then we fall into the habit of turning the garden hose on them, or watering from a sprinkling can. This is a grave mistake. Always water potted plants from the bottom by setting the pot in a receptacle full of water and allow to remain until top soil is thoroly saturated. This draws the roots down, where they belong.

Culling the Backyard Flock

IF you have half a dozen hens-- or a dozen-- on the backlot, you have a better chance of spotting the slackers than the poultry man with a large flock. If you are a real poultry enthusiast you will soon learn to know each individual hen or pullet and to realize that each one has a definite personality.

Snails as Pests

An often little-suspected pest in some new and many old gardens is the snail. A voracious eater that drags his slimy trail over and consumes most anything, tho he shows decided preferences when a variety is offered. In early spring the tender spinach or lettuce just beginning to show nicely in the rows will mysteriously disappear over night.

Two Modest Bungalows

I'M sure you'll be interested in looking over the plans of a typical little three-room California bungalow. The walls are built of hollow tile, covered with stucco; the roof is flat, with no projecting eaves, except in the rear. In the sunny southwest, snow loads do not have to be considered; however, if you use heavier beams and good, well-cemented composition roofing, a bunglow built like this will be thoroly weather-proof, almost anywhere in the United States.

Along the Garden Path With the Editor

MY good friend, Henry Field, the Sage of Shenandoah, says there ought to be a law against planting peonies any time except in the fall. And he is right, as all peony growers will agree. There would be no reason for trying to transplant them in the spring if everybody would, think of it at the right time, and get them into the ground the last of August or the first of September.
